Until you convert it back :)
I checked my broker's US offerings but can't find the US ADR's but maybe they are available on ii? It would be interesting to know the spread on the ADR's if available as for NG. it's minimal.

The FX depend on the broker though. I use ii and their FX fee is terrible but once converted you can keep the currency in USD in the trading account, so sales and reinvestments in USD have no FX fees.

Viscount - even if no SD there would be the FX spread there and back to contend with.

I tried it once and only broke even after costs! Catching the 1047 high yesterday was not a given but well done Tufty you posted your trade at the time.

I have not done this but presumably if you buy the US ADRs you avoid stamp duty?

Iv'e held these for ages but must admit the sell before ex divi seems to be repeatable here. Also selling at the post xmas high and buying back in later in the year, it trades up and down by like 20% each year.

Mir, They're upgrading at £1bn pa. Great, the regulator allows a return based on its assets, which are increasing at a bill pa too. Afaiia.Tuffu, well done if you are into that. But was the risk worth the reward? The reward was 27p minus dealing (both selling and buying) and stamp if you pay it. I'm retrospect any profit's good of course. Spreadbets would get rid of the stamp cost and make the profit more worthwhile.

I took similar action, imo the latest share price action made the choice easy.

My gain is approx 3 times what I would have received with dividend.

I'm back in with ave buy/share is £10 over three purchases :)

Well done Tufty!
I was going to do the same but missed the 1047 in the morning and it was downhill from there. Your divi is effectively (46p - dealing costs/stamp duty) then so about double what we will get.

Back in today at 1001

I bet it's too soon and something in the 990's comes along but I am ok with holding again / building out another position.

Good luck all 👍🏻

Tuftymatt,

You may have made a good move, as I too believe it will fall by more than 19p tomorrow and fall again on Fri.

History proves it to be a high probability. Then come the new year and revenues (majority of which come in second half) show promise we may see a rise back up to £12/share.

However, the next year might not pan out like other years as we don’t know when the election will be called. Despite Starmer saying Nationalisation is off the books, that doesn’t mean regulation and draconian measures won't be adopted to pacify the ‘Left’ within the Labour Party.

As stated in earlier posts, if Labour win, then the Markets will take a beating. But where do you put your hard earned wealth and shelter it from the ‘Green Eyed Monsters’, who want to take it from you because they want something for nothing?
Cash: not good unless you have it in ISAs and then the % rate is usually lower than normal savings rates. Putting it in normal savings accounts suits the Treasury as anyone with a nominal tax rate of 40% is only allowed to earn £500 interest before taxed ( £1000 for 20% tax payers).
Property: Too much regulation in the pipeline, tax incentives removed etc, more trouble than what its worth, hence, so many property owners off-loading.
Gold: Not bad but you don’t get income from it only capital growth that usually comes with unstable world events. Then when you come to sell you are subject to spot prices.
Bit Coin: very risky even if your accounts aren’t hacked by scrupulous hackers working on behalf of rogue political regimes.
Spend it: yes, but what if you have plans for the future?
Ride out the storm which may result from a Labour Gov, may be one if the best options considering all.

The upshot is that in the UK, a hard working sensible person finds it really hard to build wealth because the envy of others try to take it from you through Government intervention / policy.

Do you know the richest Country in the world does not have any inheritance tax, they applaud wealth creation and respect the professional ‘ethos’ that you have got to put something into life to get something back out.

Despite my dislike for the Shyster Hedge Funds in the USA (which affect all Markets), we can learn a lot from the US as aspiration and ambition are not such dirty words as they appear to be in the UK.

When I was a student ( many years ago), if I saw something I liked but couldn’t afford it, my stance wasn’t to lobby the Government to tax the owners as in a fit of jealousy, it was to ask myself what do I need to do to achieve and possess the same.

There wasn’t any jealousy just a surge of aspiration and belief that I could achieve but would have to work for it.

Will fall at 14:30 hrs Weds 22nd

Though the shares go ex-divi on Thurs 23rd the US ADRs go ex divi on Weds. Thursday the US markets are closed for Thanksgiving and expect volatility beforehand.

We should be working for Deutsche Bank tufty as we predicted that their 1 yr target price would be hit within days! So much for their analysts but maybe they have been topping up!!
